Bunkers – the new album
by Luke Haines
Beneath the surface of the UK lies a vast and secret
network of abandoned nuclear bunkers. Sometime in the future the population of
Great Britain has retreated into these bunkers. The reason for this exodus is
not clear. Nuclear attack? Chemical attack? Germ warfare? Or perhaps even free
will. What is known is that beneath the surface, in the bunkers, people live
the utopian dream, communicating wordlessly via a highly developed new
subconsciousness. There is no need for money and food is plentiful. The old
gods have been forgotten. People now offer prayer to a piece of silverware,
referred to as the 'New Pagan Sun', found in a bunker at Stoke on Trent, near
to the location of the 1980 Darts World Championship final between Eric Bristow
and Bobby George.
British Nuclear Bunkers is the new
album by Luke Haines. It was recorded using entirely analogue synthesisers.
Apart from an occasional vocal the only organic sound used is a recording of
Camden Borough Control Bunker being attacked late at night by Luke Haines.
Maximum Electronic Rock and Roll.
British Nuclear Bunkers will be
released by Cherry Red Records on October 16th 2015. It will be
available on CD, Vinyl (with a free 7' single) and the usual digital outlets.
Luke Haines has made many albums and written some
books. Google him if you are interested. If you're not interested then don't
bother googling him - do something else instead.
Luke Haines will be converting Bush Hall into a
nuclear bunker for a Maximum Electronic Rock and Roll show on October 21st.
He will then be touring nuclear bunkers around the UK.
